Z8RC Ultra Micro/Nano Speed Trials

The challenge: 
Fly between two light poles as fast as possible in level flight.  Flat speed to be derived by counting video frames.

The Field (in Order of Video Appearance):

Parkzone UM Pole Cat powerd by 1S Turnigy 138mAh 20C 
E-Flite UMX Sbach 342 powered by 2S E-Flight 120mAh 20C

Hobbyzone Champ powered by 1S Turnigy 138mAh 20C
E-Flite UMX Beast powered by 2S E-Flight 120mAh 20C
  
Nano Corsair powered by 3S Thunder Power G4 v2 350mAh 20C

The Race:
The hat-camera work isn't the best, but it'll do:

The Results: 
The Beast and the Pole Cat should be considered tied (within the margin of error) when sorted by time, but certainly not when sorted by $Seconds.  $Seconds = ($ * Seconds).  

I gave the Champ a $10 credit for its toy RTF radio.  The Nano Corsair price includes a 3S 350mAh battery and Optima 6 Rx.
